Age Cheating: GFA receives CAF decision concerning protest filed against two Black Maidens players

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has confirmed that its outfit has received a disciplinary decision from CAF concerning a protest filed against two of the U-17 players in a controversial FIFA Women’s World Cup Qualifiers second leg played against Morocco in Rabat.

Ghana were banned from competing in the next two editions of the FIFA U-17 Women’s African Qualifiers and fined $100,000 for age cheating.

The ban comes after a Moroccan protest that Black Maidens’ Nancy Amoh and Rasheeda Shahadu falsified their birthdate information and are above U17.

According to reports, the GFA was given the chance to defend themselves against the said claims by providing the CAF Disciplinary Board with a written response but they did not provide a statement.

 Below is a full statement from the GFA:

“The Ghana Football Association have received a disciplinary decision from CAF concerning a protest filed against two of our U17 players in a controversial World Cup Qualifiers second leg played against Morocco in Rabat.”

“The decision bans Ghana from two subsequent U17 World Cup qualifiers with a fine of 100,000 USD.

“GFA sent a written defence to CAF which was not considered.

“The Association have three (3) days to indicate its intention to appeal the decision and a further seven (7) days to send our written statement of appeal to the CAF Appeals Board.

“The GFA will study the full decision and respond with a written appeal accordingly.”
